the Swipe file

A swipe file is a useful collection of ideas, resources and strategies used by marketers, designers and makers to inspire their project. This page is my ultimate catalog of cool stuff I like. My goal is that you will find something useful for your own projects or that you find something here that you like too. 

** Last updated: December 2017 **

To kick things off, here are my saved YouTube playlists:

  • Saved Videos - my all-time favourite videos and essays.
  • Documentaries - full length docs on various topics.
  • Filmmaking - full length docs and behind the scenes featurettes on filmmaking.

Collections

These are the finest curated collections of tools and resources ever assembled. I could spend hours mindlessly browsing these sites and finding new stuff to add to my arsenal.





My Stack

This is my tool stack. It's designed to be lean, data-driven and flexible. My general philosophy is "whatever gets the job done" but these are some of the essentials that I rely on. 



Waste Some Time

Consider this the "unproductive" section. Goof around with these cool websites. 


More Tools

These are all the other random tools and resources that I couldn't fit into any of the other categories.
